Tampa Solar Panels
With year-round sunlight and beautiful skies, Tampa is an ideal location for solar panels. Florida boasts over 1,300 miles of coastline, generating tens of billions of dollars in tourism. Tampa solar panels ensure that clean energy supplies Florida, avoiding the pollution created by traditional energy sources. Solar power decreases the need for coal to be shipped into Florida, reducing Florida’s pollution and ensuring that the next generation will know a brighter, greener Florida. Sunpro Solar wants better for Tampa and the rest of Central Florida. From our base office in Tampa, we install solar panels all over Central Florida, Tampa and Orlando as a result creating clean, renewable energy for everyone.
Electricity in Tampa
Wait, did you say coal? In Tampa? I did. One of the biggest sources of Tampa electricity is the Big Bend Power Station, a coal burning eyesore on Tampa Bay near Apollo beach. As you probably guessed, there are not big coal mines in Tampa. All that coal rides on trucks and trains to Tampa, further polluting Florida’s beautiful blue sky. Florida is actually a top ten consumer of coal, all of it shipped from out of state. Those big smoke stacks are for releasing toxic sulfur dioxide and greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into the air.
Tampa solar company Sunpro Solar is proud to bring you the option of solar panels, so you can make that bright sun work for you, and preserve these beautiful beaches. We don’t have to use the same electricity from the 1960’s. The technology is here for each and every person to create their own clean, renewable energy.
Tampa, Florida Solar Incentives
Because of solar power’s great impact on the environment, there are a lot of incentives available to Tampa solar purchasers to encourage solar. Due to varying uses of electricity consumption and home efficiency, the payback on solar panels differs from person to person. However, for most people, the investment in solar panels pays back within 6-8 years. But creating power during the day isn’t the only way you earn back your investment in solar panels. There’s also:
- Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit
- Property Tax Exemption
- Florida Sales Tax Exemption
- Net Metering
These are just a few of the way that you can save money, or even put money back into your pocket!
Tampa, Florida Solar Investment Credit from Federal Government
Tampa solar panels qualify for this fantastic 30% tax credit. This tax credit will give you 30% of the total cost of your investment as a credit towards taxes already paid to the federal government. This can also be spread for up to five years. Purchase a $20,000 solar panel system and reduce your federal income tax by $6,000! Generate your own energy, AND pay the IRS less money? Seems like everyone wins here.
Tampa Solar Sales Tax Exemption
Due to high sales taxes, big purchases sometimes make you think twice. But don’t worry! Tampa solar panels are EXEMPT from sales tax. Originally a temporary tax break, in 2005, Florida made sole panels sales tax exempt. So you can buy them anywhere in Florida, and you won’t pay a dime of sales tax. So what are you waiting for? Raise the value of your property, and generate your own electricity with solar panels!
Tampa, Florida Solar Property Tax Exemption
Speaking of raising the value of your property, what about the higher property taxes that go with it? Have no fear, Sunpro Solar is here! Adding a solar panel system can raise the value of your home by up to 20 times the annual electric bill. If you were shopping for houses and one had free electricity for the next few decades, and a similar one didn’t, which one would you choose? Same choice here. Solar panels instantly make your home more valuable, but you won’t pay any extra in property tax! Another reason to go solar with Sunpro Solar!
Tampa Solar Net Metering
Net metering allows your electric meter to actually run backwards. This means the meter will run backwards if you create more power than you are using. That usually happens during the day when you’re not using the energy, like when you’re at work. At night, your solar panels probably won’t pick up all that much sunshine, so your electricity will come from the grid. If your solar panels generate more power than you use throughout the month, you can even have a negative power bill. The power company then credits that surplus forward until next month. How great would it feel to open the mail and realize the power company owes you $136? You can find out with your Tampa solar panels!
Note that in Tampa, electricity costs the most during the day when everyone runs their air conditioner. But with Tampa solar panels, you will be creating an excess of electricity during the day. Furthermore, in Tampa, the steps to have a net meter are pretty simple. Sunpro Solar handles all the requirements for you, so you don’t have to worry about it at all.
